    My credit union is going to be offering new-fangled chip cards as an alternative to standard debit in coming months. Supposedly it's an added layer of security. What say you-good or bad from a privacy/libertarian-interested POV? Thnx! ~hugs~

    Almost. In "serious" places like airports and such it was best to make sure there was an orange tip on the end of the barell so everyone knew it was a toy. Even back in the 80s and 90s airport screeners didn't know the difference between cap guns/some water guns and real guns, so they had to be shown to the screener. True story.

    This^^ During the VA Ratifying Convention Patrick Henry was the most frequent speaker against ratification of the new Constitution. Here, on 4 June, 1788, Mr. Henry first spoke to the delegates and reminded them of Virginia's sovereignty and her membership in a confederation of states. This speech is acted out in my movie "The Spirit of '76 - The Greatest Story Never Told". 4 June, 1788. The Virginia Assembly, Richmond Virginia Mr. HENRY. Mr. Chairman, the public mind, as well as my own, is extremely uneasy at the proposed change of government. Give me leave to form one of the number of those who wish to be thoroughly acquainted with the reasons of this perilous and uneasy situation, and why we are brought hither to decide on this great national question. I consider myself as the servant of the people of this commonwealth, as a sentinel over their rights, liberty, and happiness. I represent their feelings when I say that they are exceedingly uneasy at being brought from that state of full security, which they enjoyed, to the present delusive appearance of things. A year ago, the minds of our citizens were at perfect repose.Before the meeting of the late federal Convention at Philadelphia, a general peace and a universal tranquillity prevailed in this country; but, since that period, they are exceedingly uneasy and disquieted. When I wished for an appointment to this Convention, my mind was extremely agitated for the situation of public affairs. I conceived the republic to be in extreme danger. If our situation be thus uneasy, whence has arisen this fearful jeopardy? It arises from this fatal system; it arises from a proposal to change our government — a proposal that goes to the utter annihilation of the most solemn engagements of the states — a proposal of establishing nine states into a confederacy, to the eventual exclusion of four states. It goes to the annihilation of those solemn treaties we have formed with foreign nations.The present circumstances of France — the good offices rendered us by that kingdom — require our most faithful and most punctual adherence to our treaty with her. We are in alliance with the Spaniards, the Dutch, the Prussians; those treaties bound us as thirteen states confederated together. Yet here is a proposal to sever that confederacy. Is it possible that we shall abandon all our treaties and national engagements? — and for what? I expected to hear the reasons for an event so unexpected to my mind and many others. Was our civil polity, or public justice, endangered or sapped? Was the real existence of the country threatened, or was this preceded by a mournful progression of events? This proposal of altering our federal government is of a most alarming nature! Make the best of this new government — say it is composed by any thing but inspiration — you ought to be extremely cautious, watchful, jealous of your liberty; for, instead of securing your rights, you may lose them forever. If a wrong step be now made, the republic may be lost forever. If this new government will not come up to the expectation of the people, and they shall be disappointed, their liberty will be lost, and tyranny must and will arise. I repeat it again, and I beg gentlemen to consider, that a wrong step, made now, will plunge us into misery, and our republic will be lost. It will be necessary for this Convention to have a faithful historical detail of the facts that preceded the session of the federal Convention, and the reasons that actuated its members in proposing an entire alteration of government, and to demonstrate the dangers that awaited us. If they were of such awful magnitude as to warrant a proposal so extremely perilous as this, I must assert, that this Convention has an absolute right to a thorough discovery of every circumstance relative to this great event. And here I would make this inquiry of those worthy characters who composed a part of...

    :eek: http://filmingcops.com/us-cops-kill-more-people-in-a-day-than-norwegian-cops-have-in-a-decade WASHINGTON DC With Americans being killed by police every day, one begins to wonder what the country would be like if cops were trained differently and stopped resorting to lethal force so quickly. One country we can look to is Norway. In Norway, cops have shot only one person to death. That was nearly a decade ago. Since then there have been no other fatal shootings by Norwegian police. Norwegian police are trained to actually de-escalate conflicts and engage with people respectfully, eye-to eye. Contrast that with the United States. In just the first eight months since January 1, 2015, over 600 Americans have been killed by police.

    I am indeed surprised! I think you'd like it. It's also not a terribly long read like other Rothbard tomes. (you can read it in one sitting, depending on how long your sittings are) Available free in several formats here: http://mises.org/document/1011 I haven't read it in a few years, and probably should again.

    Your liberty to swing your arm ends at my nose. Slander and defamation are valid torts with a longstanding history in English common law.

    The reason this method of settling disputes exists is so people don't kill each other over it instead, which historically people have done quite often.

    I gave you neg rep because the thread titles in this forum are tweeted and you just made a public spectacle with an anti-Paul diatribe, when you could have asked your question in a much more civil manner. You deserved it and you should come to terms with that.

    IIRC, it was in that thread I first saw him being an ass, and -repped him. Before I pm'ed you about this, he wrote on my profile, “Wrong. Vessol is now a known liar which is quite easy to confirm. Search on my user ID and try to locate the source for Vessol's false attribution of the phrase, "bunch of stuff", to me. Well, you'll find that Vessol is the source for the false attribution. Since you're defending a known liar, your credibility is questionable.”
    Then when I pm'ed you to ask about the issue, he wote on my profile " “Instead of inquiring with Sentient Void about Vessol's lie, all you have to do is search on my UserID. You'll find the original user of the phrase in question was Vessol who falsely attributed it to me. It's not hard. I'm assuming by your question to Sentient Void that you want rumor instead of facts... ”

    He seems rather creeeepy to me. :P

    Hey, man. I want to check with you on a rumor I just heard about RPF member Vessol. According to tpreitzel, he is a "known liar". I don't know tpreitzel or his history well, so I can't vouch for his credibility. WTF is he talking about? Any truth to this?

    That's fine. I wish there were more environmentalist libertarians. But if he wishes keep the "-tarian" part, he should brush up on his econ 101.

On AGW, CO2 Concentration, Venus, and the playful use of Statistical Interpretation

by Sentient Void on 10-15-2015 at 08:32 PM
Ah, yes. The ole AGW 'debate' (if one could honestly call it that). I apologize in advance for sullying your computer screen with another such screed, but the AGW hype-train just keeps on keepin' on, and there are some particularly glaring nosebleed-inducing dents in said hype-train for me to stay quiet on much longer.

First, let's look at the real meat of the numbers, here.

Abortion, rights and libertarianism. How to 'solve' this understandably divisive issue?

by Sentient Void on 08-01-2013 at 05:23 PM
The issue of abortion is one that is constantly brought up and debated about at length within libertarian circles. It is often if not almost always approached as a black and white issue which in my view understandably creates tension and conclusions which cause their own problems. It's time to understand and consider a different approach to this altogether.

There is a common Rothbardian argument with respect to abortion. To the mother (the right and proper owner of her private property,

FACT: The United States actually voted for 'Nobody' in 2012

by Sentient Void on 11-20-2012 at 07:34 PM
FACT: The United States voted 'NOBODY, 2012'

In *2011* the *voting age population* of the USA was 237,657,645. It's obviously even more in 2012.

61,173,739 voted for Obama.
58,167,260 voted for Romney.

That is 119,340,999 out of a total voting age population of 237,657,645.

That means that *more than half* of the population voted for *NOBODY*. Approximately 24.4% of the voting age population voted for Romney. Approximately 25.7%

Just Following Orders.

by Sentient Void on 09-01-2012 at 12:18 AM
When a man claims to be 'just following orders' - he loses a major piece of what makes him a human being. He sheds his humanity because instead of being an individual capable of wisdom, sound moral judgement and/or rational thought, he becomes nothing more than the extension of another man's will. When this happens, he is no longer a thinking man - he becomes simply a tool to be used. Like a machine following a program. Or like a wrench to a nut. The wrench does not think or feel, it is simply used,
